Premier League outfit Everton have opened discussions with Rangers over the signing of Nathan Patterson, it has been confirmed.

The subject of transfer business has of course taken its place front and centre on the blue half of Merseyside over recent weeks.

This comes as the board at Goodison Park desperately scramble to secure reinforcements, amid a season to forget thus far.

On the back of a 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion this afternoon, Rafael Benitez’s troops remain in a lowly 15th in the Premier League table, just eight points clear of the relegation zone.

The Toffees, in turn, have already acted swiftly to address one area of concern, bringing in highly-regarded left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko just hours after the winter transfer window officially swung open:

Patterson incoming?

And now, as alluded to above, those in a position of power at Goodison Park have set efforts in motion to reinforce the other side of the club’s backline, too.

As per a report from Jordan Campbell, Rangers correspondent for reliable outlet The Athletic, Everton have opened negotiations with the Scottish champions over the January signing of Nathan Patterson.

For those not aware, Patterson is a highly-regarded 20-year-old right-back, who last year established himself as a full Scottish international.

After seeing an approach knocked back by their Rangers counterparts during the summer, Everton are understood to have returned with an improved offer this time round, with confidence now high that a deal will ultimately be struck.

Any such agreement is expected to mark a club-record sale for Rangers, surpassing the £9 million secured for Alan Hutton back in 2008.
